Windows Process Description:

Firelight Technologies Limited is a worldwide leader in game audio systems. Since its creation in 2002, it has experienced a considerable growth because of its new innovation in the field of gaming and audio. It created a revolutionary sound system used by sound engineers, multimedia and game developers, musicians, and audio engineers. This innovation aims to push the boundaries of audio implementation for games and similar applications, at the same time uses minimal amount of resources. This new engine is called FMOD.

FMOD is an audio library that plays music files from diverse formats and on many different platforms. This program is an easy to use cross-platform audio engine often used in games and software application in order to provide audio functionality to your system. FMOD holds the fmod.dll module.

The DLL fmod.dll contains the core components needed by FMOD to initialize. It works with the fsound_init in order to play sound. The fmod.dll module is subdivided into two APIs, namely FSound and FMusic. The FSound API is used for PCM-based or compressed files like WAV, MP2, MP3, OGG, and RAW. This API is treated as either stream or sample so it can be played. Samples are decompressed into memory before being played and can be played multiple times. On the contrary, streams are used when you want to play bigger files like continuous background. Streams are played in realtime and needs less memory; however, they cannot be played in multiple times at once. The other API of the fmod.dll program is FMusic API that loads the interleaved files created from FSound.

The fmod.dll application is available on all Windows platforms as well as on Linux, Macintosh, GameCube, Playstation 2, and Xbox platforms. It can be used with Visual Basic, Delphi, MASM, C, and C++. The DLL fmod.dll is available under multiple license schemes and free of charge to non-commercial applications. It may be commercially used under a number of different license types, each license containing different restrictions and conditions.

The fmod.dll program comes in two flavors, the FMOD and FMOD Ex. The FMOD Ex is the designation given to the 4x series of the fmod.dll library. FMOD is the FMOD version 3.75, which lacks the platform and format support found in FMOD Ex.
